Christian Lindholm, a pioneer of mobile experience design, has his sights set on enabling a new generation of wearables for health and fashion. He talks to MEX founder Marek Pawlowski about his journey from Nokia in the 1990s, where he shipped the Navi Key UI on hundreds of millions of mobile devices – to his current ventures, including the Koru UI platform for wearables and an accelerator for digital health startups. The conversation also explores Christian’s time as a managing partner at design agency Fjord, when the company grew from a small design studio to become a global business subsequently acquired by Accenture.
